Day 233


Neither the pillar of cloud by day

nor the pillar of fire by night left its place

in front of the people.

Exodus 13:22

My child, you will face danger repeatedly. Obstacles will line your path. Darkness will obscure your view. Terror will stalk you like a lion on the loose. But I am your pillar of fire to guide you through. I will blaze a trail for you that will tunnel through every mountain, burn through every forest, and clear every cloud. Stay close to My side. There, the smoke won't get in your eyes.

Even when I can't see a thing in front of me, there You are, Lord, blazing a trail as a pillar of fire.  Just as You led the Israelites out of bondage by Your own raging forest fire, You send Your protection out ahead of me. Lord, I can't go wrong following You.


Some fires give warmth, light, and comfort; others destroy everything in their paths.
